Windows 7: A way to make Firefox Tabs show on task bar..?

A way to make Firefox Tabs show on task bar..?

I am guessing the answer is no. When you run Internet Explorer, each individual tab shows as a separate entry on the task bar.. which is sort of cool, because you can then mouse over the explorer icon, and through peek get a view of all your open tabs.. Unfortunately, explorer does not have some of the essential FF plugins that I use on a regular basis.. so..

Is there a way to make this feature work with Firefox as well..?

Not yet,

I have seen and heard about workarounds that partly work but until Mozilla fully optimises for windows 7 this will I fear be a unique feature of IE8 amongst the browsers
